LPAD Applications to Deaf Populations.
Braden, Jeffery P.
The theory and purpose underlying R. Feuerstein's Learning Potential Assessment Device (LPAD) is reviewed, and implications for deaf education considered. It is argued that LPAD use will enhance: (1) assessment of deaf children from non-standard American backgrounds; (2) incorporation of assessment results into educational programming; and (3) the establishment of a growth potential, non-categorical approach to low-functioning children. However, it is also argued that the LPAD is difficult to administer due to communication requirements, assumes remediational programming currently beyond the vast majority of deaf educational programs, and fails to account for racial group differences found on standard psychometric measures.
